People’s chair while we wait followed by 10 donkey kicks, 10 derkins X 3.

Lunge walk down, backwards run back.

Bear crawl down, backwards run back.

Crab walk down, backwards run back.

Mosey to the church parking lot. Partner up, size matters.

Partner A carries B to the end. Flap jack and head back.

Partner A/B wheelbarrows to the end. Stay there.

6 MOM: LBCs, Heels to the Heavens, Rosalitas, Flutter Kicks, Dollies.

Mosey back to COT.

Moleskin:

@MightyWind attended and brought his wig with him. Impressive #PertPlus flow.

PAX from all over the region attended for this launch. Much appreciated support for the newest region.

@Slaughter was on fire with his Q but more importantly, his naming of the PAX. Well done brother.

@MonkeyFeet showed off his #handstandmerkins in normal fashion.

Weeks ago, @Backup put an ad on Facebook for F3 Gastonia. 10 PAX got EH’d on Facebook. T-Claps brother.

Gastown PAX fought through the first post (@DaVinci, @Godfather, @Rudolph, @Lucky to name a few). It was hard but worth it. T-Claps for not quitting men.

Strong 2nd F attendance by the PAX at Panera.

Solid inaugural launch. GasHouse is back on next Saturday. Same time (7AM), same place (Schiele Museum). @Egypt has the Q which is sure to be painful.
